Mystery after over a tonne of dead fish wash up on shores of Bolivian lake

March 12, 2016

 

 

"Thousands of small sardine-like fish have been found dead in lake Alalay, but no one is completely sure what caused oxygen levels in the lake to drop so dramatically

 

Thousands of dead fish have washed up onto the shores of a lake in Bolivia.
Just before they died, some of the fish had just hatched from their eggs in lake Alalay, in the central Bolivian city of Cochabamba.
No one yet knows the number of dead fish, but they have stockpiled five cubic metres (177 cubic feet) so far, so it's possible there is over a tonne of dead fish in the lake.

According to local media reports, the most affected species was the "platincho" fish which is similar in appearance to sardines.
The fish carcasses were taken to a local dump.
Authorities believe low oxygen levels in the waters of Lake Alalay, due to the the highly polluted water, in addition to the last heatwave in 2015, led to the massive fish kill, but the exact cause of the conditions were unclear.
Oxygen levels dropped from 5 millimetres per litre to 2.8 millimetres, according to a preliminary laboratory report, released by local authorities.
Results will be compared with reports from SEMAPA, Cochabamba's municipal water company and the University of San Simon.
Environmentalists have said the lake is constantly threatened by fires, namely one last year, as well as discharge of sewage."

Highly poisonous toxin causes mass fish deaths

 

A highly-poisonous toxin may be behind the abnormal mass fish deaths along the central coast of Việt Nam over the last three weeks.

This was announced by Agriculture and Rural Development Deputy Minister Vũ Văn Tám yesterday.

A report, led by Tám, which was made public yesterday, revealed its findings on the cause of some 45 tonnes of dead fish. The fish showed no signs of disease and basic environment parameters were within limitations when the deaths occurred, according to the report.

The Research Institute for Aquaculture No. 1 and the Department of Animal Health – authors of the report – said the only possible trigger for deaths on such a massive scale was a highly-poisonous toxin, which could be biological, chemical or of another kind.

Wave of dead sea creatures hits Chile's beaches

 

Heaps of dead whales, salmon and sardines blamed on the El Nino freak weather phenomenon have clogged Chile's Pacific beaches in recent months.

Last year, scientists were shocked when more than 300 whales turned up dead on remote bays of the southern coast. It was the first in a series of grim finds.

 

At the start of this year, a surge in algae in the water choked to death an estimated 40,000 tons of salmon in the Los Lagos region, where the Andes tower over lakes and green farming valleys down to the coast.

That is about 12 percent of annual salmon production in Chile, the world's second-biggest producer of the fish after Norway.

 

This month, some 8,000 tons of sardines were washed up at the mouth of the Queule river. And thousands of dead clams piled up on the coast of Chiloe Island.

Authorities blamed a "red tide" of algae.

 

They banned fishing in the affected region, putting thousands of fishermen out of work.

Nearly 2.5 million birds dead as H5 avian influenza strain sweeps Baghadad, Iraq

July 26, 2016

 

"More than half a million birds have died thanks to a highly pathogenic H5 avian influenza strain that has torn through Baghdad and in Iraq.

Over 2.8 million are reported to be at risk of catching the deadly virus that has so far been reported in 11 precincts across Iraq's capital Baghdad and the easterly city of Wasit - a UNESCO World Heritage site.
 
A source of the outbreak remains "unknown or inconclusive", according to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).
In total, 512,948 chickens died as a result of the H5 avian influenza virus, whilst a further 2.3m have been euthanized in order to quell the virus from spreading to other parts of Iraq and evolving into an epidemic.
 
The virus was first detected on 15 June 2016 and it took six weeks for Iraq to send a detailed report of the bird flu strain to the OIE.
Dr Salah Fadhil Abbas, director general, Veterinary Directorate, Ministry of Agriculture in Iraq reported the disease to the OIE.
 
This is the second large bird flu outbreak reported in Iraq in the year after the H5N1 strain killed 77,101 birds in April.
 
A report from the US Department of Agriculture from April reported it expected the US to enjoy a rise in broiler meat exports to Iraq thanks to the relaxation of avian influenza-related safety restrictions. <<man, I do not like the way that sounds, or is it just me?.....

More than 2,000 deer reported dead in S.D. disease outbreak

Nov. 29, 2016

140 deer deaths attributed to EHD in Hughes County

 

"The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department issued more deer licenses this year than it did last year, but a disease outbreak was spreading fear that numbers may be down during the 2016 hunting season.

Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease, a viral disease that killed more than 3,700 deer in 2012, has impacted the population this year, with more than 2,000 deer found dead in 23 counties, The Mitchell Daily Republic reported. The heaviest losses have been in Brule, Aurora and Beadle Counties. In Beadle County, 209 deer were found dead and in Brule County, 206 deer were found dead.

Hughes and Sully Counties were not spared. A total of 140 deer were found dead in Hughes County, while 85 were found in Sully County, said Andy Lindbloom, senior big game biologist.

“We definitely got closer to 2012 than we would have liked,” Lindbloom said.

The state issued about 29,000 resident licenses this year. It also issued about 42,000 individual tags, a 33 percent increase from last year."

1,000s of geese die after landing in toxic waters of Montana pit mine

Dec. 7, 2016      

"Thousands of snow geese died after landing in the toxic waters of an old open-pit copper mine in Butte, Montana. The migrating birds were forced to land in Berkeley Pit on November 28 by severe winter weather.

 

Mark Thompson, environmental affairs manager for mining company Montana Resources, said that it looked like “seven-hundred acres of white birds” had landed, AP reported.

“I can’t underscore enough how many birds were in the Butte area that night. Numbers beyond anything we’ve ever experienced in our 21 years of monitoring by several orders of magnitude,” Thompson said

Some 2,000 to 5,000 migratory birds normally appear in the area every year, but one estimate from an off-duty Montana Resources employee put this year’s number at no less than 25,000.

Workers from Montana Resources and Atlantic Richfield (ARCO) – both of which are responsible for the pit – attempted to scare off the geese that landed with spotlights, noise makers, and other means, while trying to prevent others from landing.

By November 29, they had managed to chase off more than 90 percent of the birds, according to Thompson, who said the workers “did incredible things to save a lot of birds and they really put their heart and soul behind it... they did everything they could think of.”

Originally opened in 1955, Berkeley Pit is a former copper mine that was closed in 1982. The waters of the open pit contain heavy metals and dangerous chemicals, including copper, arsenic, cadmium, zinc, and sulfuric acid."

"No one knows why more than 200 red-winged blackbirds fell from the sky in South Jersey.

Just ahead of Thanksgiving, scores of dead birds rained down on Cumberland County. It was the second time in less than a month that saw birds mysteriously die, with a similar incident occurring in a North Jersey farming area earlier this year.

“They just fell from the sky,” New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection spokesperson Larry Hanja told philly.com."

Dead fish, crabs and lobsters: Nova Scotia marine mystery growing

Dec. 27, 2016

snip   video

"A marine mystery is confounding residents of southwest Nova Scotia who are watching thousands of dead fish, starfish, crabs, clams, scallops and lobster wash up on the shore.
Residents of Plympton, a small community in Digby County, say they have been finding dead herring on the shore of St. Mary’s Bay for more than a month, but recently other marine life has started washing up dead. Dead fish have also been found on the shores of the Annapolis Basin.
"We started finding starfish, crabs, flounder. We found ocean perch and then yesterday we started finding scallops on the beach and like I said everything's dead... we'd like to know what's going on," said Karl Cole.

"It's just really sad to see, you know, hundreds of starfish, shellfish. I grew up clamming here so to come to your hometown and see so much death on the beach is really sad,” said Eric Hewey.
Hewey took photos of the beach and posted them to his Facebook page Monday, writing: “Herring, Lobster, Bar clams, Starfish and more. No idea what caused this. Likely it could be a natural disaster. Please try not to jump to any conclusions until we get a response from Natural Resources, or another credible source.”

" The latest report on pelicans found sick and dying around the city says dead birds continue to turn up but so far scientists still don't know what's killing them."

"Reports about the dead birds have been pouring in since Jan. 11, according to the report."

"Low levels of toxins from an ongoing Red Tide algae bloom were detected in the bodies of some of the dead pelicans, "demonstrating some exposure," the report noted. "These results are inconclusive, neither confirming nor ruling out Red Tide as the cause of death.""

"Some bird advocates fear what's going on could be linked to St. Petersburg's recent sewage crisis, when the city release tens of millions of gallons of waste into Tampa Bay during last year's storms."

ducks in washington have avian cholera ! imagine...ducks with a bad case of the shits ! 

"An outbreak of avian cholera has killed about 500 birds at the McNary National Wildlife Refuge near Burbank in the last week."

"People are not at high risk of infection by the bacteria that causes avian cholera. But they should still wear gloves when handling dead birds and wash through hands thoroughly after disposing of birds, according to the National Wildlife Health Center."

"Refuge workers have been collecting dead birds and incinerating them to help stop the spread of the bacterial disease, Haas said. They also have stopped knocking down corn planted to help feed waterfowl. Although birds are stressed and could use the food, congregating birds would spread the disease."

"“It’s a pretty virulent disease,” Haas said. Birds can die in as little as six hours after infection."

"Birds can be infected through contact with other birds, including dead birds harboring the bacteria, or through the droppings of infected birds. They also can pick up the bacteria from contaminated food or water, according to the National Wildlife Health Center. Mice may also be infected with the bacteria, spreading the infection to birds of prey that eat them or eat contaminated dead birds."

Is an earthquake about to hit the Philippines? Mysterious sightings of 30ft sea serpents prompt fears one is brewing

Feb. 23, 2017   Phoebe Weston

"Giant oarfish described as 'messengers of the sea' have been washing ashore in the Philippines in recent days, triggering fears an earthquake is about to hit.
A number of bizarre-looking creatures, which usually live at depths of 3,000ft, have been found dead along the country's coasts.
Many locals and some scientists believe these so-called 'sea serpents' wash up onto shore by strong currents that precede quakes."

The giant sea serpent was found on a beach in Agusan del Norte in the Philippines. A killer earthquake ravaged Mindanao island and many believe that oarfish washing ashore is a sign that an earthquake will soon follow

Thousands of Sharks, Other Sea Life Mysteriously Die in San Francisco Bay

Bigad Shaban, Rachel Witte and Michael Horn   Oct. 5, 2017

snip  video

"The California Department of Fish and Wildlife isn't dedicating any funding toward determining the cause, says resources are needed elsewhere

As many as 2,000 sharks have mysteriously died in the San Francisco Bay, and scientists believe whatever killed them is now spreading to other marine life. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says determining the cause is not a priority and, therefore, the state is not dedicating any funds towards researching the deaths. Investigative reporter Bigad Shaban reports on a story that first aired, Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017. 

 As many as 2,000 leopard sharks have mysteriously died in the San Francisco Bay over the past few months. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says determining the cause is not a priority for the state since the sharks are not threatened or endangered, however, scientists say additional research and resources are crucial since the threat is now believed to be preying on other marine life.
“This year is unusual in that there has been a large number of other species that have also been dying,” said Dr. Mark Okihiro, a research scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. “This pathogen can tackle a variety of different species … we've had a much more diverse group of fish that have been found dead in the San Francisco Bay.”
At least 500 bat rays, hundreds of striped bass, 50 smooth-hound sharks and about 100 halibut died in the bay between February and July, according to Okihiro’s estimates."

Hundreds of 'Boiled' Bats Fall from Sky in Australian Heat Wave
By Stephanie Pappas, Live Science Contributor | January 8, 2018

More than 200 bats have lost their lives to southern Australia's ongoing heat wave.

As temperatures rose to 111.5 degrees Fahrenheit (44.2 degrees Celsius) in Campbelltown in the Australian state of New South Wales, a colony of flying fox bats that lives near the town's train station felt the effects. Volunteers struggled to rescue the heat-stricken bats, according to the Campbelltown-Macarthur Advertiser, but at least 204 individual animals, mostly babies, died.

"They basically boil," Kate Ryan, the colony manager for the Campbelltown bats, told the newspaper. "It affects their brain — their brain just fries and they become incoherent." [Watch for Falling Iguanas! Bomb Cyclone Drops Frozen Lizards]

Rescuers with Help Save the Wildlife and Bushlands in Campbelltown posted on their Facebook page details of the dire situation: "As the dead bodies were recovered and placed in a pile for a head count the numbers had reached 200 not including the many hundreds that were still left in trees being unreachable, sadly a few adults were also included in the body count. It was a long and heartbreaking afternoon..." 

Heat and more heat

The colony of flying foxes in Campbelltown belong to the species Pteropus poliocephalus, better known as the gray-headed flying fox. Their wingspans can stretch more than 3.3 feet (1 meter), and they can weigh more than 2.2 lbs. (1 kilogram). Important pollinators, the bats eat mainly nectar, pollen and fruit.

Temperatures higher than 86 degrees F (30 degrees C) can be dangerous to young flying foxes, Ryan told the Advertiser, because their bodies lose the ability to regulate their temperature. For the Campbelltown colony, a lack of both water and shade exacerbates the problem, she said.

Southern Australia's heat has reached far beyond 86 degrees F in the past several days. Most of New South Wales is experiencing a severe heat wave, according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. On Jan. 6, a weather station in the Sydney suburb of Penrith recorded a reading of 116.78 degrees F (47.1 degrees C), the hottest in the Sydney metro area since 1939, when a nearby station recorded a temperature of 118.04 degrees F (47.8 C).

The most extreme heat is expected to abate in the coming days, though meteorologists said a lower-intensity heat wave will persist throughout much of the state of Queensland, northern New South Wales and southern Central Australia through at least Wednesday (Jan. 10).

Florida Multiple Species Mass Deaths In June-July 2018 

http://www.end-times-prophecy.org/animal-deaths-birds-fish-end-times.html

Not only loads of fish, Manatees, large sharks are also showing up apparently.

Is the deaths to do with something like these?:

1) Volcanic toxic chemical released into the water?---in relation to the worried Yellowstone activity and East coast line areas balancing the actions?? The effect happened to Hawaii had been picked up by the Ring of Fire, but how the hell that's arriving to the opposite coast lines? 

2) Sea Floor mass changes happening and unknown low frequency released from Earth changes? 

3) Black Goo spreading....? Microbes changed physical compositions? A different sort of toxic reaction happening on East coast line?
